Jo became a world traveller by not choosing the group tour! and said “I get the biggest buzz from wandering through the markets, having a coffee in a local cafe and just watching the locals just do what they do. I like being amongst it all and not having to experience it through a window.” She says that what she enjoys most about working with her clients is, “the journey of ‘someone' new sitting with me, travelling through their first adventure and becoming part of their world of travel, making a friend, learning what's important to them, and creating a travel experience just for them”. One thing Jo never travels without are her lipsticks!
